ok so i need some help. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to tell what key i'm playing a solo in by ear with no knowledge of music theory.

I don't understand the question. What key are you playing in if you are just playing by ear or? Most likely Chromatic, so it doesn't matter what key. Probably should rephrase the question.

Knowing what key something is in implies some knowledge of music theory, so I don't see how that would be possible.
Yeah to know what specific key you are in you will have to recognize chord progressions/intervals.

You could know you are in a different key just by noticing a different tonality of how the music is going, but your not really going to get too far unless you know some music theory.
